Junia and the Importance of Greek Accents

Junia and the Importance of Greek Accents December 5, 2010
Some (especially those who skipped accents altogether when they first learned Greek) are boung to find them puzzling and wonder what they are useful for.
For one answer, visit Suzanne’s Bookshelf, which has a post on the accenting of the name Junia in Romans 16:7 and how it provides indication that, in the period when accents were being added to Greek manuscripts when they were copied, Junia was understood to be a woman.

  • Thanks. I remember originally that I posted Greek without accents a few years ago, and said that I didn't think they were all that important. However Peter Kirk and others on the BBB corrected me on that, and I have to admit that eventually I learned to think of the accent as an integral part of the word.
